Older people should drink less

22nd June 2011

A report from the Royal College of Psychiatrists has recommended that safe limits for drinking alcohol by older people should be drastically cut.

It says that older drinkers are less able to process alcohol and the drink might also interact with medication they may be taking for other ailments and that over 65s should drink a maximum of only 1.5 units of alcohol a day, which is equivalent to just over about half a pint of beer or a small glass of wine.
